There is a man down on the set of Bond 25.
As if the production hasn’t been through enough troubles, the leading actor has now suffered an injury, causing filming to be suspended.
The as-yet-untitled film will be Daniel Craig’s last as the MI6 agent, having played the role since Casino Royale in 2006.
The actor was reportedly sprinting on the set in Jamaica last week and fell awkwardly, believing to have wounded his ankle. He was then flown to the US where X-rays were taken.
The incident led to shooting being suspended on the project, which has already been heavily delayed due to Danny Boyle bowing out as director.
The Trainspotting filmmaker cited creative differences as the reason for his decision, and was eventually replaced by Cary Jo Fukunaga.
Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are penning the script.
Rami Malek, Jeffrey Wright, Lea Seydoux, Billy Magnussen, Ben Winshaw, Naomi Harris, and Ralph Fiennes will form part of the cast for the feature, which is scheduled for release on April 8th, 2020.
